What is happening: Retailers and logistics providers are using more robots with AI in their warehouses.
Why is this happening: They are aiming to keep up with the rapid growth of e-commerce.
Technology: The tech in question should use machine learning to improve efficiency, cut down on time-consuming steps, analyse past orders, and even work out the best places to store high-volume goods.
Issues: There are still limits to robots and AI, and plenty of mistakes they can make. They are intended to be used in accompaniment with human workers, and are not there to replace them.
